Jose Aldo Vs. Erik Koch Planned For “UFC 153″ In Rio

UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo will make his return to action at UFC 153 in October against Erik Koch, according to Zero Hora. The bout will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The same report also claimed that Vitor Belfort will return from a hand injury to compete at the event, though no opponent was named.

Aldo and Koch were expected to face each other in July, but “Scarface” pulled out with an injury. Aldo has held the title since entering the UFC, and defeated Chad Mendes in Rio earlier this year.

Koch has won 13 of his 14 fights, including a win over Jonathan Brookins last year.
